    I'd buy the shit out of that.

    I played an MLP members (63?) MM in Chicago for like a year. That guitar was awesome.

    Some guys would pay $600 just for the knobs.

    that guitar taught me that a wraptail bridge can be really amazing.

    Actually I bet that's the guitar that got me liking Teles, right around when I gave it back to the owner is when I started plinking on a Tele. Something about that twang.

    That single coil and mahogany body and short scale length was just the tits. Such a cool guitar. His was the dual pickup one too.

    that seafood Ramen soup in San Diego was almost worth flying 9 hours for. Almost.

    I'd fly six hours for it.

    You better hurry. If it's located within the pink circle, that was my neighborhood for a couple years in the 90s. Plus I'm a little closer than you. I can be there in 45min.
    You should never post the whole link. When I have questions about stuff on CL I'll just post pics for fear that a scumbag like me will beat me to it or offer a higher price. :rofl:
    J/K :wave:. But it did get my brain stimulated. :hmm:

    I got a response that he already has someone coming to look at it, but I'm next in line.

    When I made the thread, I wasn't looking to buy it, just a heads-up to others.


    That's how I got my beloved Studio. One of the MLP brothers posted a link. $400, ebony fretboard. Gibson case.
